51-year-old physician Larry Stack said that while he is on a mountain climbing in Quito, Ecuador, he felt an unusual feeling.
Stack experienced shortness in breathing with her previous trips, but this time [trip], he said, was different. “I developed a headache, and felt like I was... Read More

Fortunately today, OCD is well recognized, so most people have heard of it. However, without personally experiencing the horror of OCD symptoms, it’s unlikely that others will understand the serious grip that OCD has on a person.

To add insult to embarrassment, gathering the courage to describe your OCD symptoms out loud can be a huge anti-climax.... Read More

So I was quite shocked when my doctor called me after a few weeks about my smear. I became quite worried when she insisted on seeing me right away. My doctor was the doctor associated... Read More
